Description Purodha Blissenbach 2008-10-17 17:14:58 UTC
Some svg images having valid older thumbnails fail to have newer ones generated. For example, this one:ünster.svg/99px-Stadtwappen_der_kreisfreien_Stadt_Münster.svg.png

Error generating thumbnail

Error creating thumbnail: Invalid byte sequence in conversion inputünster.svg/500px-Stadtwappen_der_kreisfreien_Stadt_Münster.svg.png

Working, has been generated earlier.

I think this bug must be assigned an highest priority, because it seem to corrupt every thumbnail generated from file with non-english letters in filename.
In very few times there will be a lot of non-english wikis with hundreds of corrupted image.

It is guessed at [[:commons:Commons:Village_pump#Missing images]] that the reason is the use of non-ASCII characters in file names. My personal experience with several problems reported at german Wikipedia seem to support this.äler_fmi_ag_logo.svgölten_(2006).svg
but this works:ät_Münster.svg

If this turns out to be true, it is absolutely unacceptable!
Comment 3 Platonides 2008-10-18 20:26:12 UTC
Seems a regression caused by the rsvg update. Assigning to Tim Starling.
Comment 4 Tim Starling 2008-10-20 06:48:08 UTC
Fixed in rsvg 2.22.2-100wm2 and deployed already. Upstream bug report: <>
